everything is ok with this hotel,room is clean,service is good and do everyday.Totally I am happy with this strip and will stay again in the future.

Our stay was alright. The room was still dirty when we checked in. We cleaned out bottles and other dirty items out from under the beds and disposed of them. The room next door was extremely loud and you could hear them beat their children. Besides the negative things the continental breakfast was great and the pool was great when it was open. Overall we tried to not stay in the room as much and went out to travel around the area and site see.

The hotel was just as described. The room was nice and clean. I would stay hear again.

This was a nice hotel for a low price. The room was not big, nor was there anything special about it, but it was cheap, and there was nothing wrong with it, so I was very satisfied. The breakfast was not much, but it was free, so nobody has a right to complain about it.

The receptionist at the hotel was friendly courteous and knowledgeable and fast doing the check in process

This place is very old or poorly maintained. My bed sheets were stained with facial dirt, loose hair and who knows what else. I always inspect "fully" before using public sheets. There was a dead roach at each corner of the room and dirt and hair in the shower. I was very disappointed because prices just keep climbing but the rooms stay the same or worst.

Our hotel was fine considering we were only there to sleep. Our room didn't cool off until I took the temp all the way down to 60*. One of the light bulbs in the room was out and upon first flush the toilet overflowed with toilet paper being what I blew my nose in. It took someone 20 minutes to come and plunge toilet and wipe floor with towel. Also some better weatherstripping on the door would help in keeping the room a bit quieter. I guess you really do get what you pay for.

A bad experience with a room full of roaches and dirty bed sheets. Then they gave us another room and the rug was fully wet from a leak of the AC so you cant take your shoes off to stay dry and put no bags on the floor. Overall pay a couple bucks more and get another hotel.

Great. Friendly staff and convinient location. Centrally located to Downtown Orlando, stores, food, shopping, and partying at Ibor City.

The service was excellent and the employees were exceptionally professional!

Here is pretty nice.. But, free wifi is so slow....

It was in a easy to find location. I have no complaints on the room itself. Breakfast could have been a better selection major dussappointment.

Great location, and helpful staff, but bathroom was disgusting. Hair still in the shower. Shower clogged, and hair would float around in the tub. Grossed us out so much, we didn't shower during the stay.

Asked for disabled room and got first floor. No Toilet assist bar or bathtub handrail. High bathroom counter. Lounge closed on Mondays. Difficult to turn in from Northbound N 50th Street.

The most comfortable beds and pillows we had on our trip. The motel does show some signs of its age, but not to the extent that it took away from the experience. The staff was wonderful. The location was convenient to almost everything (except the beach). We were on the highway side. You could hear the traffic, but the nearness of the highway was the reason it was so convenient and it really did not bother us. Would recommend this motel to anyone looking for economy and convenience.

In all honesty I wasn't expecting much for $49.00 a night but I wasn't expecting a literal truck stop! There were rigs parked in the parking lot and you have a view of the highway through a chain linked fence so not much to look at , didn't really matter to me as much as the room which was clean and had a microwave, fridge, AC and even an iron and ironing board. Would of been great if the the iron actually worked, the AC was broken too and that was a far bigger deal. I've read other reviews here and many people complain about the smell which isn't a big deal for me but THE ROOM SMELLED! The smell of industrial chemical cleaners was so bad it was practically unbearable! After sitting with the door open for an hour or more it became manageable. At best It's somewhere to stay for a night but wouldn't stay more than a night. spend the extra cash and stay somewhere better.

Is an old hotel. They change towels everyday, but not the bed. Many places to eat near.

Staff nice and reasonably efficient. Interior needs updating, but that is to be expected. Room clean, except we saw and killed a cockroach. Carpets sticky between the beds. Breakfast poorly stocked.

Nasty truck stop reality, and the pool was moldy black!

i am 63 ,my first time traveling alone to watch spring training baseball--and lie in the sun and swim.everything was terrific..the manager was so helpful with directions, printing boarding passes, just everything..my maid service was very accomidating and this trip was priced right i will request this hotel again next spring, bonnie ahrens
